This week we do part 1 of our Game of the Year deliberations. We pose a lot of hypotheticals, most importantly we put four games head, head to head, against each other.

The Walking Dead vs. Spec Ops: The Line

Listen and see which games we select to move on to have a shot at becoming the Pixel by Pixel game of the year.

This week is mostly about Dishonored(excuse me, Rehonored). We wanted to talk about something that wasn't Walking Dead for a bit, we'll return! So we discuss just how different our playthroughs of Rehonored have been. We discuss our favorite parts of design and how the culminate is lots of fun choices. Also we explain our GOTY process and what's going to happen for the next two to three episodes.

Games Discussed: Rehonored(Dishonored), Mass Effects 2 and 3, all the best ones that came out this year.

The VGAs just happned (congrats to The Walking Dead team at Telltale!) and we were there to make a mockery of it. We ended up just making a mockery of ourselves though. We get excited for trailers and laugh at whatever was presented to us/ So come listen to us enjoy Doritos and NOT enjoy Sour Patch Kids, yuck.

Games Discussed: The Phantom Pain (or Metal Gear Solid V, although we were duped), South Park, Dark Souls I and II, Halo 4, Tomb Raider, Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2, Gears of War: Judgement, the Walking Dead, and anything else at the awards.

We return (albeit a little late) from our extoic adventures, Patrick from the untamed wilds of Mexico and Nick from laborious Christmas tree lot. Don't worry though, we talk video games. Mostly Mass Effect 2 (that's right 2) and Walking Dead and how they present choice and dialog. We both also start our quest to get rehonored and Patrick is still puzzled by choice in Call of Duty.

Games Discussed: Mass Effect 2, Mass Effect 3 DLC (Leviathan and Omenga), The Walking Dead, Dishonored/Rehonored, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, FIFA 2012 for iOS.

Pixel by Pixel -  Episode 1 - Millennium Falcon on the Oregon Trail

NOTE: The audio quality on this and the second episode are meh at best. PLease forgive us as we're still new and we fix it by the third episode.

It's our first episode! We obviously have a lot to learn, but we think we have something. A few notes: for the first two episodes we thought we were going to be called "Relatively Speaking." We're not now, but that's how we refer to ourselves in the episode. We lost some audio, but it's still a pretty good episode. Nick eve talks a little about his time working QA at Treyarch for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.

Games discussed: FTL: Faster Than Light, XCOM: Enemy Unknown, The Walking Dead, Borderlands 2, Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

We're submitting to iTunes soon and episode 2 should be up sometime tomorrow.

Everything's kind of sloppy looking right now, it'll all be clean and awesome looking soon.
